Farm Bureau offering scholarships

Scholarships are offered by the North Dakota Farm Bureau to students pursuing a graduate degree, high school students preparing for college and undergraduates majoring in agriculture.

“This is a great opportunity for NDFB to help students financially so they can further their education.” said Joey Tigges, director of development for the North Dakota Farm Bureau.

The scholarships include one for graduate students, one for students enrolled in agriculture majors, a Farm Bureau family scholarship and the Becki Palmer Scholarship, a memorial scholarship for a longtime staff member who died of cancer. A new scholarship added this year targets high school seniors who are enrolled in an agriculture school.

The scholarships are made possible through contributions to the NDFB Foundation and a live auction at the NDBF annual meeting that raised more than $5,000 this year.

Scholarship applications are available on the Promotion and Education scholarship page at The applications are due in the NDFB office in Fargo no later than April 15.
